– Video of the Day – The Religion of Consumerism (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 27, 2014):
The notion of consumerism as the religion of the United States is nothing new. That said, Warren Pollock did an excellent job explaining just how corrosive this mindset can be to a society. I was particularly taken by the idea that since the vast majority of people define themselves almost entirely by their level of consumption, or by some desired level of future consumption, their consciousness becomes easily controlled and their worldview easily managed and molded. They simply cannot see life in any other context and so they become trapped within a very sick and twisted form of human existence.
I’ve seen several of Warren’s videos in the past, but this is the first one I’ve shared. I know you’ll enjoy.
